Synopsis from Goodreads: When a local teacher is found dead, LA’s newest pet groomer Mimi Lee finds herself in a pawful predicament—with her younger sister’s livelihood on the line.
Mimi Lee is on top of the world. She has a thriving pet grooming business, the sweetest boyfriend, and a talking cat to boot. When she arrives at the elementary school where her sister Alice works, she's expecting a fun girls' night out—but instead finds a teacher slumped over in her car, dead.
Alice was the last one to see Helen Reed, which instantly marks her as the prime suspect. Unable to sit quietly and let the authorities walk all over her sister, Mimi starts snooping and talks to Helen’s closest contacts, including one jumpy principal, a two-faced fiancé, and three sketchy teachers. With the help of her sassy but savvy cat, Marshmallow, and a cute kitten named Nimbus, the clock’s ticking for Mimi to get to the bottom of yet another case before her sister gets schooled.
My Review: This is the second book in the series and I definitely recommend reading the books in order so that you aren't lost in the beginning. This one jumps right into the story where the first book left off. I really enjoyed the mystery in this one and I had no idea where it was going, which was nice. I didn't really like Josh, the boyfriend, though. He's a little boring. I did love the cats though and I enjoyed getting to see more of Mimi's family. Overall it was a really fun read.
